Default one bad day

i went doe hunting last year and i sat all day and didn't see anything. finally a huge doe walked right in front of me and stopped about 20 feet from me.I pulled up my 30-30 and took the safety off. as soon as i did that a branch fell down and the doe ran away. i was so angry. i didnt see anything the rest of the day. it was the last day of rifle to.

Everything happens for a reason. IMO. Better luck next time.

it happens to everyone sooner or later you made the smart /safe choice but not just throwing lead into the air at a running deer,for that you should be proud,do you have a late bow or muzzleloader season to hunt?its kinda early for deer season to be over allready,mine hasnt even started yetopps just reread your post it was last year,better luck this year,TRIM THOSE LANES
Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky
